In an effort to get Campbell County citizens involved in recreational activities that they enjoy doing, the Campbell County Community Public Recreation District (CCCPRD) has been actively funding local projects since its establishment in May of 2001. CCCPRD funds many activities and projects which promote healthy lifestyles for the youth and adults of Campbell County.


CCCPRD provides funding for numerous activities including after-school bowling for junior high and high school students, sewing and crafting clubs, art clubs, book clubs, various summer camps for basketball, tennis, track and football, and numerous other activities and endeavors that committed adults have developed to involve our youth. The Donkey Creek Festival, Quilt Club, and Furniture Refinishing Workshop are programs which adults may participate in as well. Check out the Activity Finder for a complete list of programs.


The Campbell County Community Public Recreation District was formed by the Campbell County School District Board of Trustees in July of 2001.  The purpose of the recreation district is to support programs to increase community participation in a variety of recreational endeavors. Funding for the program is through the recreation mill levy imposed pursuant to W.S. 18-9-201(b), which allows communities in Wyoming to form and fund Recreation Districts.


To date the CCCPRD Board has imposed a 1 mill levy annually and approved over $38 million in funding for recreational projects for the citizens of Campbell County.  The funding is provided for projects that meet the requirements of the CCCPRD. There are two opportunities to apply for funding: November 1 and April 1. For further information on the nuts and bolts of the CCCPRD, please view our By-Laws.

About 70% of this funding has been used for in-district programs and projects, with the remaining 30% used to fund community-based programs.  Any citizen or member of an organization may apply for funding for a program, project or activity that is recreational in nature and available to the public.


The CCCPRD provides funding for summer programs for residents of Campbell County who range in age from preschool through adult, as well as for various recreational clubs and programs offered before and after school during the school year for elementary and secondary schools.  CCCPRD has formed collaborative partnerships with the Campbell County Parks and Recreation Department, Campbell County Public Library, and Cam-Plex, as well as other governmental agencies, and has also provided funding for countless private community organizations in Campbell County.

In 2007 the CCCPRD Board voted to commit $18.5 million for the construction of a field house which is now part of the new recreation center that was funded and built with funding from the City of Gillette and Campbell County.


The field house includes a college-level indoor running track with the center area available for tennis, soccer and football.  The indoor facility allows the community to have recreational opportunities during inclement weather.  Approximately $1.25 million will have to be set aside each funding cycle (every six months) until June 15, 2019, when the field house will have been paid in full.

Funding Info

The Campbell County Community Public Recreation District was formed by the Campbell County School District Board of Trustees and charged with the purpose of increasing community participation in a variety of recreational endeavors available to the public.  CCCPRD approves funding in two cycles each year.


Application deadlines for the two CCCPRD funding cycles are April 1, with funds available in July for 12 months, and November 1, with funds available in January for 18 months.  School district staff and community members are encouraged to apply for funding.


In the fall of 2006, the CCCPRD Board was approached by the city and county governments to consider help with funding a joint project for the new Campbell County Recreation Center.  The board has committed $18.5 million to this project.  Even with this commitment, the Board anticipates being able to continue to fund approximately $2 million in programs per year.


The CCCPRD currently funds over 85 recreational programs in Campbell County.  Committed community members make these programs successful. Working together, we can all help by fostering programs to increase community participation.
